Crit your Pantson January 14, 2013 at 12:01 am

I DM’d for the first time this weekend and it went really… Interesting. We’re a jokey group so lots of hilarity ensued. I recorded some audio (6 hours of it) I haven’t had a chance to listen to it but I may post some snippets at some point.
Thanks for all the great links to DM/GM resources you guys gave me. I should have specified that we’re playing fourth edition (I know, I know…)
Dam I’m a Elf, don’t have the skills!
That’s some cruel and unusual DMing there… Love it (might try it if I should get back into it again).
Unusual? Our DM used to go very graphic in his descriptions.
Cruel and unusual?
You need to play HoL (Human Occupied Landfill), if you think that’s odd~
Dude, nothing wrong with 4th edition, just don’t make a warforged artificer.
They’re beyond broken.
They skip right over bed and bath.
Sounds like Deadlands. Which is awesome, if you’ve never played.
“Stumble over an unseen, imaginary, deceased turtle.”
Best critical failure ever. Also something I’m excessively prone to, being the only person who can trip up on a flat, unobstructed surface.
Is Terry Pratchett DMing your games?
POST IT ALL! WE WILL LISTEN!
… I’m using this next time I run something
The 4th edition DMG 2 I found to be a really good book, both in terms of being a good resource for DMs and addressing some issues that came to light with 4th edtition after a bit of time that the DMG 1 wasn’t totally on top of.
Keep this up and I will need to ban my GM from reading ARG.
Whaaat? I’m sending this one to my DM right now! I’m hoping they will collude on horrible things like this!
Last time I gamed, I was a barbarian with a two handed broadsword (wielded with one since I had monkey grip) and I had Cleave so anything over 15 was a crit that followed through to the next closest enemy. They sent me into a crowd of 10 Gnolls I was a whirlwind of blood and tears.
I think I’d be walking out of there about now… 😛
Sounds like you were almost reading for the critical wounds table from Dark Heresey from the sound of the horrific death. If not you might want to check it out if you need more ideas.
Damn. Poopy terrain is the last thing I need in a pitched fight.
Someone will have to clean that mess up for the next group of adventurers. I hate to have to assign that role to anyone.
D&D as directed by George Lucas.
Hey! I like fourth edition and I’m glad you enjoyed time spent gaming with your friends! That’s the point after all, it doesn’t matter what edition you play!
Reminds me of one Pathfinder session I played in. I was using a cavalier, and ended up putting acid on my lance, prior to critting on a charge. Not only did the damage instantly kill the poor, unwitting bandit, but my DM followed up with pure pandemonium. A bandit lookout, terrified by the dissolving, eviscerated remains of his former compatriot fell out of a tree in his haste to get away, failing his acrobatics check and breaking his neck on impact. Another one tried to run away and fell in a pitfall trap that they had set for us. The third used his action to surrender while crying and defecating himself.
This was a good day for me.
There’s nothing wrong with 4th edition, I find it is a lot more newbie friendly then some of the older material.
4th? Really? I’ve only given up on one web comic ever. EVER! And they offended me in such a way as to totally alienate my entire childhood, but you’re close… Oh, so close.
Hah, this is too funny,yet all the more disturbing for its realism, anywho, I actually wanna hear all of the recordings, I assume nerdy giggles are all up in there…
Suddenly I want to play this game, blasting arrows into heads sounds fun. Anyone know where I can get one of these?
For the edition-conscious. http://i.imgur.com/SfAiX.png and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRZ1CYYIsCg
HAHAHA. I thought of doing that once in a D&D.. but decided it wasn’t worth getting beaten with a broom.
